~  ~  ~

Amanti Vino Proprietor Sharon Sevrens

November 30, 2017 ... Amanti Vino Proprietor Sharon Sevrens will open her second storefront location in early 2018 in Morristown, NJ. Sevrens is building on 12 years of success in Montclair as a thought leader and innovative retailer of small production wines, exceptional craft beer and artisanal spirits. Amanti Vino also has an award-winning website,, named one of the 10 best online wine shops by Food & Wine Magazine. 


The Morristown shop is currently undergoing buildout in a 3,000-square-foot space at 60A South Street. The design will be modeled after the Montclair location, where bottles are displayed artfully on custom-built shelving and a playful decor creates a welcoming vibe. Area wine lovers will have the opportunity to discover the best boutique wines from around the world at all price points. Sevrens personally selects each wine with her friendly, professionally trained staff. 


"We take great pride in choosing the very best wines at all prices from around the world. There's nothing we love more than having a customer come back to thank us for opening their eyes to a new grape or region," says Sevrens. "My goal is to have great wine for everyone, from the everyday consumer looking for superb quality at low prices to the most serious collectors of some of the most sought-after cult wines."

In addition to the carefully curated selection of exceptional wines, spirits and beer, Amanti Vino is known for its approachable, well-trained staff, memorable wine dinners with acclaimed local chefs and restaurateurs and a heartfelt commitment to building and supporting the  community


Consumer education is also important to Sevrens, a former investment banker who left Wall Street to become a sommelier and parlay her passion for wine into a thriving business. Amanti Vino is the only Approved Provider in NJ of the prestigious UK-based Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) courses, catering to industry professionals and serious enthusiasts. As in Montclair, the Morristown store will include a classroom for everything from WSET certification at all levels to proprietary classes designed for everyone from neophytes to aficionados. 


"We can't wait to expand our audience in Morris County and become a part of the fabric that makes Morristown and the surrounding area so special," says Sevrens. 


But why wait? Area residents can begin to experience Amanti Vino's commitment to wine, beer and spirits by placing orders online or by calling the Montclair location at 973-509-WINE (9463). Amanti's Vino Van has already begun making daily deliveries within a 20-mile radius of the future Morristown store. 


Amanti Vino offers catering and free local delivery to restaurants and residences.
